Aphrodite; Goddess of Fertility
Aphrodite is largely associated with Venus as the Greek goddess of love, desire, fertility, passion and beauty, and through these mediums, can be a divine catalyst of transformation in these areas.
She is the Mother of Eros, who is the God of Love, embodying the spirit of metamorphosis and transformation that true love requires of us.
When we are able to love ourselves through our own transformation, our own letting go of who we once were in order to welcome in who we are to become, we find that the power it requires to move through this process with grace comes from the goddess of Love that dwells within our soul.
She is the divine mother that lives within all of our hearts. She is not only a mother to what she creates in this life, but she can also be a mother to herself through times of transformation, which can feel overwhelming and painful at times…
She knows that we can only grow through experiencing these pains; the pains of motherhood, the pains of love, the pains of desire, and that these are what make life so very beautiful.
This visual talisman is intended to invoke the goddess Aphrodite, the element of Water, and the Great Mother archetype, promoting unconditional love of self and other, a great capacity to receive, reciprocal relationships, and an inner strength while moving though life altering experiences.
